A prominent developer with huge ties to Mt. Juliet has pinpointed sister city Donelson for yet another development.
Known for it's "edgy" look at Mt. Juliet's Providence Station (which includes Marriot Courtyard that opened last Saturday, UMC, Steak & Shake, Walgreens etc.) on South Mt. Juliet Road, developer CRS (Commercial Reality Services) and its founder Kenneth Powers announced today he's completed a redevelopment project at 457 Donelson Pike for their adaptive reuse retail project.
Donelson's had resurgence of late, even dubbed as the new So Bro.
"We are excited to finish and deliver a great adaptive reuse project in Donelson and are thrilled with how the building turned out," said Will Tyner, CRS development partner. "These are some of the most fun projects for us, because we get to take something old and breathe new life into it."
Construction completed last month and the project is now fully leased. Current tenants include Jimmy John's Gourmet Sandwiches and Athena Wine & Spirits.
Their final tenant, occupying 2,147 square feet, is Sitar Indian Restaurant. Rated the best Indian cuisine in Nashville, this will be Sitar's second location in Nashville. Their current location at 116 21st Ave North, opened in 1993.
Owner Harish Kumar said with the growth of Nashville, it is time for Sitar to grow as well. Kumar said they are opening a Sitar in Donelson because it is a newly-popular area convenient to the Nashville Airport and Opryland.
"And we've acquired other property in Donelson as well," said Tyner.
That additional property is in line for some possible redevelopment at the intersection of McGavock Pike and Lebanon Road, which consists of three separate parcels of single tenant retail totaling more than 12,165 square feet, which includes national retailers CVS, Pizza Hut and Baskin Robbins.
Donelson Corner is located four miles from the Nashville International Airport and just six miles from Downtown Nashville.
"Donelson Corner is a great property on one of the best corners in the Donelson area, and while there are no immediate plans for redevelopment of the property, we are excited to see what opportunities might be available in the future on such a great piece of property," said Powers.
The 40 acres in Mt. Juliet purchased 14 years ago by Powers is nearly built out.
